The Crystal of the Day for Saturday 7 December  2013 is Serpentine which corresponds with Saturn, Saturday’s planet.  Serpentine gets its name from the word ‘serpent’ because it resembles the skin of a snake. It is sometimes called New Jade and occurs in a variety of colours including red, green, brown-red, brown-yellow and white. It has been used since ancient times to guard against disease and sorcery.

Serpentine makes an exceptional meditation stone. It helps you to find inner peace. Serpentine was carried in ancient Assyria to request the gods and goddesses to provide double blessings. Nursing women used it to regulate their milk supply.

Some of the uses of serpentine include: Protection against poisonous creatures such as snakes, insects, etc., balances mood swings, and encourages the ability to solve conflicts by peaceful means.
